After a year on campus, the ACU Cycling Club is searching for additional members to expand the club.
Logan Primm, sophomore engineering major from Fort Worth and president of the Cycling Club, said there is no limit to how many people can ride.
Members of the Cycling Club are looking for additional members for their race team.
Primm said on the weekends, the club will have harder and longer rides of either 20 mph for a speed-focused ride, or 50 miles for a long-distance ride.
“We usually have two rides per week that meet at the library and are about 20 miles through downtown,” Primm said. “Those are no-drop rides, so anyone is welcome to come, even if they are not part of the club.”
Primm said in addition to the weekend rides and the 20-mile weekday rides, the club usually joins Biketown, a local bike shop, once each week for a training ride of various lengths and speeds.
All joining members are required to purchase an ACU Cycling kit, which includes a jersey and bib to show that they are on the team. Members must also have their own bike and helmet.
“There are higher qualifications for the race team,” Primm said. “But for club we are looking for anyone that is willing to ride and wants to improve their riding abilities with the community of fellow ACU students.”
Primm said members must be prepared to put in effort through difficult training.
“The hope with the club is to have a wide enough skill range for riders to be able to push each other to get better,” Primm said. “We hope to have a group of riders who are well trained enough to start racing for ACU at the collegiate level.”
The club has no limit to how many members they will accept. Those interested in joining can contact Primm at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
